A New Beginning

I've never been comfortable with Etsy. I would sometimes go search for my own products, under specific names I have given my items, and never found them, instead having my search filled with items that were similarly named but not that specific name.

Then again, I never really put a lot of time into my online presence. It's not easy for me. I can write, but when it comes to describing my items, the time and effort and the things I can visualize, the rants I can go on...the words never seem right. Other people's listings have flowery descriptions of works that I could emulate, but it I feel like I would be just copying and pasting into EVERY THING I POSTED because the words are never right, and I want my images to speak for themselves. Also, it's a lot of work to write when I could just make.

I know. I'm making my own site from scratch-ish. It's a lot of work. It's imperfect. It's overwhelming. I have to learn a lot of things. I hope, though, that once I have everything what I want and where I want it, that I won't have to do more work for my store than I did on Etsy, but this is me and just me.

And I get to do things like this, to talk about the stuff I make and the things I have learned and the things I love. I get to rant, to an audience that actually wants to read these rants. I have the potential for an audience that wants to benefit from my experiences.

I can't guarantee this will work. I can't guarantee I'll be successful at this. There are only three certain things in life, and this is one of those. Change. Something different, something new, something me.
